George was the son of James and Louisa Glore Cayton. He married Martha Ellen, the daughter of Benjamin and Jemima Howlett, on January 22, 1858 in Boone County, Kentucky.

The couple were the parents of young children, when the Civil War broke out. George was enlisted as a Pvt. in Co. D, 7th Ky. Vol. Cav., Union and served with his regiment until the end of the war. The men of the 7th Cavalry were mustered out on July 10, 1865 at Edgefield, Tennessee. Mr. Cayton returned home and was reunited with his family.

George earned his living by working as as a sewing machine agent and Rebecca kept house and tended to the children. The couple were the parents of James William and Jackson (twins), Martin A., Mary, Minnie, George, John Benjamin and Harriet Cayton. Mrs. Cayton passed away in 1898.

In his latter years, he accepted an invitation to live in the home of his son, John, in Cincinnati. Mr. Cayton passed away, in that city, and his remains were sent to Kentucky for interment beside those of his late wife.
